Good for you, thatgirl! It is so exciting to see how fast the money can pile up when you pay attention. You are sacrificing a lot to get where you are want to go, money-wise and life-wise, and that kind of discipline bodes very well for your future.
I just did a back of the envelope number-crunch of what we've saved since 2005 and it is really, really remarkable. So much so I keep pulling out the envelope to check! But I remember quite well being where you are today, as far as my financial education and savings. Keep reading, and keep saving! Thanks for the update, too!
